During a discussion concerning the eventual exhausting of all IP addresses, fnerg asked "What is the function for IP consumption?" then remarked, "Hey, that rhymes!" I liked the sound of that...
Subtle ode to the mamaries.
My 19-month-old son has just recorded his first piece.

Track 3 from the Hot Dog Party
Track 2 from Live at The Hotdog Party
This is the first track from my "Live at the Hotdog Party" CD. More info on the HDP in the comments.
An in-depth exploartion of the birth of Christ, as recontextualized through the filter of cyberspace. Nicholas Markos played guitar.
A cover of the Beastie Boys song, utilizing a cast of Mac OS9 text to speech voice talent and Acid.
Back when I moved into the then-gentrifying Wicker Park neighborhood, I was under the impression that I would be having a whole lot of cross-cultural sex. Sigh...
This is aparently a cover of an Ozark Mountain Daredevils song. I am utterly unfamiliar with that band or their version of the song. In college, a firend sang the song to me once, and years later I recorded this from what I could remember. I was trying to do a gospel thing, but the sort of gospel you would hear in that church portrayed in the last scenes of X: The Man With the X-Ray Eyes.
Some of you may have heard of Straight-Up Willie, the pickingest banjo man ever to be run out of Chatahootchee on a rail...
If you were ever in that cave below The Metro in the early 90's, tripping balls, you may know what I was trying to get at in this song. Otherwise, just crank it up and enjoy the ride.
Sitting around the living room of a green house in Champaign, IL with a 7' cartoon chicken on the lawn, sometime around 1990, Jim Potts and I threw this together. A couple years later, we made this recording, with Mark Schwarz engineering.
This a story 'bout Jean; Jean Jean Ass Machine. Vox: Nicholas Markos, The rest: Me and ACID.
Me and general Schwartzkopf's Army, if that helps date this "song." It's done in that 3 Days style that all the kids are using now.
Me: tenor sax & vox & cowriter, Jim Potts: guitar & cowriter, Nicholas Markos: bass, Chris Markos: drums
A fairly straightforward narrative. Recorded on 16 track, 1" tape, as was the custom at the time. I played tenor sax, yelled some stuff, and played or programmed all the electronic stuff. Recorded and mastered at the legendary Flat Iron Studio in Wicker Park (well, legendary to Screeching Weasel and Ralph Colvert fans, I guess).
I was thinking about my friend Nicholas and Xmas, and this squirted out. "Drums" are an Acid loop, "bass" and "horns" are WX5 wind controller driving a VL70m. A/D via Layla, mixed in Cool Edit Pro on win95.
A gentle lullaby for kids and adults alike.
